Dual-screen laptop

Recently, ASUS came up with the idea of a dual-screen laptop at this year’s Computex, this dual-screen laptop belongs to the Zenbook Duo family of laptops. As we know ASUS introduced ScreenPad last year, an idea that has been extended to this year’s laptops, but the current laptop unveiled by ASUS has its secondary screen directly above the keyboard, known as ScreenPad Plus.

This dual-screen laptop i designed to enable users to run multiple tasks on these screens, which will, in turn, encourage more than one user at the same time. While at the same time, the screen directly above the system keyboard can be partitioned, each with a different display. 

The functionality of the screen does not just operate on typical ASUS software but can be used practically as a display for Windows 10 workspace. According to analysts, its screen that lies directly above the keyboard has the same pixel density as the primary screen, with this one could practically move windows between two screens with less visual disruption. Window 10 could only allow two Apps to split horizontally, while on the other hand, ASUS software, such as a quick App launcher enables the feature that allows users to operate three Apps side-by-side.

Another beauty of the ASUS dual-screen laptop is the structural design of its secondary screen, which can be deployed for multitasking, in different dimensions, such as composing a document while the video is on, on another screen, and also browsing the web, while the second screen is used for reference purpose.

Speaking of the sizes (dual-screen laptop) for each screen, ScreenPad Plus is fourteen inches (14 inches) while the dimensions of the Pro’s main display is fifteen point six inches (15.6 inches). However, the smaller Duo is designed with a fourteen-inch (14-inch) main display with a twelve-point six (12.6-inch) for its ScreenPad Plus respectively. The primary display and the ScreenPad Plus are touch-enabled, it is also understood, that the main display uses OLED with a glossy finish, while its screen directly above the keyboard function as LCD with a matte finish, indicating they are full high definition (Full HD).

Meanwhile, from here at clinchbase.com we would analyze this eye-catching gadget as a great development from ASUS and also a huge challenge to their competitors.
